Lily Sympathy Card

A dear friend lost her brother, so I wanted to make her a sympathy card. She loves flowers, but I think the pollen bothers her. I had grown these lilies up at the cabin and photographed them back in July. I used the Kaleidoscope program to create my own background paper. By choosing a square template and then multiple printing, it produces a piece of background paper that will match the photo of the lilies I wanted to use. I wanted as much of the background paper to show as possible (I think it would make a pretty card all alone) so I used vellum as my mat and for the message. The mats were cut with Spellbinders nestabilites and Wizard....what else will give you that little classy frame?
I love this program as it allows me to use two of my loves together, photography and cardmaking. It is so easy, even a non computer nerd like me can work it! It is so much fun, someone might have to call the Geek Squad to come pry my fingers off the keyboard!

Such a lovely card! What a wonderful idea to use a beautiful photograph and this program to make a card. I love the sentiment stamped on vellum too. Sorry to hear about your friends loss.
